Pretty Woman


After creating and posting the Cinema Saturday challenge for Pretty Woman, I couldn't get the Roy Orbison song out of my head. This, then was my inspiration to have another go at it using the same image and materials, but adding a scalloped lace border by Fiskars, and attaching the flowers and vines (Stampendous) with foam dots to make a pretty woman walking down the street....(ah there goes that tune again). The phrase is computer generated, laminated, and framed with a sizzix die cut from copper cardstock to match the first layer. The first challenge card is here and offers more details about this challenge celebrating their 50th cinema challenge. To see how the design team was inspired for this challenge go here. Now, if I could just remember all the words to the song, I wouldn't have to keep repeating.... "Pretty Woman, walking down the street....pretty woman....."
